ahead, senator feinstein introduces a new assault weapons ban in front of a massive display of guns ten years after writing the original ban. what are the chances this one will pass? >>> this hour, president obama makes another big nomination and it is a woman. it comes at the time, of course, when some criticized a lack of diversity in the president's cabin cabinet. live coverage of the announcement and join our conversation on twitter, you can find us. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your mo
the measure pulls together a number of things that president obama proposed and could put senate majority leader harry reid in a difficult position, a long time gun advocate, and says he may allow this to go to a vote and an amendment process, could wind up watering it down before it it gets to the house, megyn. >> megyn: now we have the full force of the president's reelection team, no less, out there pushing for support for this and other measures that are backed by the white house. and they are targeting democratic lawmakers in particular who are not on board yet with the dianne feinstein proposal, but would like them to be, so anything could happen. i want to ask about something we saw earlier when dianne feinstein unveiled this proposal. she had props, you know the pictures of these guns, they look like pretty serious weapons, there are no handguns or rifles there, correct? >> well, now what? we actually just got a listing of the specific weapons that were there from our track senior capital hill producer. he was able to get us a list of the weapons and it does seem to include some h
to the inauguration of president obama. virginia republicans had to wait until he was gone because the state senate is equally divided in virginia, 20 republicans and 20 democrats. but with henry marsh gone for the day, it's no longer an even divide, right? it's 20-19. with that advantage, republicans decided to spring on the senate and spring on the entire state a whole new set of redmaps. a whole new set of gerrymandered maps for the state, drafted to put republicans in charge in virginia effectively permanently. because they did it when henry marsh was away, republicans succeeded in this plan by one vote. in their stealth attack to change the maps. that one vote was the missing vote of the senator who had gone to the inauguration. that's how they started the week. now virginia republicans are moving on to the next part of it. they're moving on to the electoral college scheme part of it, using the same maps they have gerrymandered for a permanent republican advantage at the state level to also dispute virginia's electoral college votes when it comes to voting for president. today a virginia subco
magazines and closing loopholes. host: gun control could split obama, reid. they say backing restrictions could hurt the senate leader and other democrats. this story points out that for some democrats up for reelection, supporting the president will be treacherous terrain. they go on to talk about facing reelection battles in states where gun control is politically unpopular making potential votes on the proposals problematic. what might the strategy be at your organization to work with these folks to get what you want done? guest: what we intend to do is to make clear there is broad support from gun owners and nra members for a number of these measures. to show the politics of this issue. the country's attitudes toward this issue has changed significantly since the last time we had a debate, a comprehensive conversation with the american people reducing gun violence. i think you have seen over time poll after poll showed that people support these approaches. people want to have a background check for every purchase and sale of a gun because you do not want to have guns in the hands of c
's an odd turn-around, two years ago we were hearing this from senate minority leader republican mitch mcconnell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? wil
